Chaise Lounge features great daily specials, friendly service and a varied selection of craft beers. Hit up the the bar to enjoy the hockey games or relax in the dining room for an intimate dinner.
I had a 20 oz Guiness. Delicious. Right temperature. Only missing the cross when poured. I used my thumb and made my own.
Even though it is summer, I had the prime rib (8 oz, with potatoes, veggies and yorkshire pudding). It was very good. But not great. I would have actually a slightly better quality cut of meat and less of it. That is not to say that I wouldn't recommend it to someone who was desperate for a meat fix - but I have had better in the city.
Service was excellent - friendly, but not obtrusive.
My hubby and I went here for lunch today. They had a steak, potato and coleslaw special for $10 which we ordered. We also ordered Chicken Wings at $0.35 each (a dozen) and a large plate of french fries for $5.00. Everything tasted good.
The service was good too. The waitress came around at the perfect time.
The ambiance was very nice too. Not too loud music and just very relaxing.
They have great lunch specials and it changes everyday. (Eg. Mexican burger $8!!!)
Would recommend this place and would go back!!!
I think the amount of food in that platter is way less than if the three apetizers were ordered separately.
They should review this because there are many customers like me who just look for an excuse to never go back to a place; We are so lucky after all in Vancouver with the many great restaurant choices.
If anyone ordered the spanakopita for $10, how many pieces did you get? We got two; How about the potato coquettes? I think we got four. as for the calamari, we did find a fiew pieces among the chillies!
But other than that, it was a good experience. Great salmon burgers, clean environment (spotless washroom) and cheerful but somewhat slow service; She told us they were hit with too many customers at one time. We sat outside and felt comfortable with the heaters on.
As I said, I would not go back but would recommed the place to anyone as long as they don't fall for the "three for two" deal :)
Since moving into the area about six months ago, my girlfriend and I have eaten at Chaise Lounge at least a dozen times. I really can't say enough about the value and quality of the food. The burgers are gigantic and always amazing. They are juicy, well spiced, and the accompanying fries are plentiful and always cooked to perfection. They have interesting and affordable specials every day. From their super hot chicken wings to their pierogi with sausage and onion, the specials are always cheap and tasty.
The service is very professional, friendly, and never rushed. They always seem to know exactly when you need a refill on a drink or when you'd like the bill. The barman is is also very affable and always greets you with a smile.
The atmosphere is relaxed yet trendy. It's a really comfortable place to sit down after a day of work and have a beer and an excellent meal. There are plenty of tables and many plush booths.
Overall, this is my favourite and most frequented eatery on Main.
Chaise has been on Main for three months and not yet a review. I find that weird. It's in the old Wing Nuts location across from Nesters. This lower area of Main really needs a good restaurant. Found the menu kind of odd, any menu that has only twenty odd items but includes ceviche, poutine and nachos. It's like a mini Earls menu. But it is a "Lounge" so maybe that explains the menu. (it's not a lounge, it's a restaurant)
I really enjoyed my thick cut pork chop, with mustard butter. It was so incredibly tasty I could eat it night after night. I do not know if it would come so perfectly cooked again. I will be trying that pork chop again very soon, yum. My big pork chop came with pan fried cabbage with bacon, .....cabbage and big chunks of bacon? Good idea. And of course mashed potatoes. $13 for the meal. Hmm. Nice price.
The "Roast of Beast" the Sunday night special was ham and it also was super tasty. I tried the house red wine at $6 bucks a glass, could not really tell the taste because the glasses were so cold. But I drank two so....?
I am going back at least two more times, going to check out the Tuesday night special "Great Savoury Pot Pies" and I am going to check out their brunch. Oh, and the chicken and mash potatoes, that sounds good too. So three times, make it. Oh, and maybe for the Cobb salad, because that might be good also. Don't know yet until I try it!
Saturday night is "Fast Food Revisited" and the waiter told us last Saturday the special was an Artic Char burger. Hmmm. That is some SERIOUS fast food revisiting.
I'm checking this place out, might be a slow start but possibly could turn into something good.
I recently visited this relatively new spot in Vancouver. I was quite excited at first: a small, intimate setting, not too loud or bright. The waitress was nice (although did not prove particularly attentive).
The appetizer we had was buffalo sausage in tomato sauce. Really, really disappointing: sharp flavour, a heavy gross feeling left in your stomach after.
For dinner, my partner had a german roast type dish, which was nice, nothing special but well done.
My dinner choice: lobster BLT sandwich. WOW WOW WOW! Amazing combination of flavours. Lobster, lemon, avocado, tomato, bacon, etc. I will definitely return for it.
Food: I had the pork chop with mustard/apple sauce which was simply amazing. The quality of the meat was top notch and the sauce was incredible. The dish blew my mind. It also harmonized well with the beer. I had it two weeks ago and still cannot get it out of my mind.
Service: Attentive and friendly.
Value: Face melting pork chop dish for $13? Yes.
Ambiance: Cool retro feel but very modern at the same time. A "cool" atmosphere.
I understand that the lounge is under new management as of last week. I really hope that the food and service has not changed... This is one of the best restaurants in Vancouver, and I've been here 15 years.
